There are countless examples throughout history of how open communication, sharing ideas, identifying problems in any culture, addressing those issues, can and has changed an area.
Some claim as up to 90% of communication is nonverbalI tend to agree with that statement
Words matter in a society. They always have. But not as much as much as what our eyes see, and how those words are uttered.
How we use our voice that is
In 1839 Edward Bulwer-Lytoon wrote about the concept of communication being a vehicle for change in any society. Most importantly his essay claimed that…
….communication is a more effective tool than direct violenceEdward Bulwer-Lytton
Communication, written or otherwise, has always lead to change. Do these changes happen quickly? Usually not. Should they? Some.
Sometimes communication can be as fancy as the professors of our world speaking of metonymic adages. More routinely though, it takes place as easily as a look between friends. Sometimes the message and signs are crystal clear. Others are cloudy.
Because of this living thing called the internet, of which I was not born into, learning to play an instrument has never been more accessible. So is communicating with our family, friends, coworkers, or anyone else almost anywhere on this planet and beyond in almost real time.

Hopefully it’s an interesting experiment.
I hope anyway
